2 weeks ago, I had one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was simply giving back to the patients at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. Out of all of the demos I have done at stores, and people I have served breakfast to, this was the most rewarding. The kids absolutely loved it. the event was a huge production put on by Trueheart Events. It was held at the Avalon in Hollywood. There were huge sleigh's, a snow machine, Santa, and tons of activities for the kids.
We created a never seen before pancake combination. The S'more pancake. We took our Vanilla Mix, added chocolate chips, marshmallows , whip cream, maple syrup, and graham crackers. It was the most popular by far. We also served Strawberry Shortcake and Banana Pudding, just to keep it Southern.
It was kind of cool to serve our pancakes alongside celebrities that attended the event and gave back to the life-changing hospital and it's patients. They also tried our mixes and got to take some home as well. Here's a few pictures:
Biggest Loser Host Alison Sweeney and her family enjoyed the pancake bar and took our Breakfast in Bed Collection home.
Brad Garrett did a great job of keeping the kids entertained and he also took home our Holiday Breakfast Collection.
Cupcake Wars host Justin Willman tasted our first Pancake of the day as we ran a few test batches. He approved.
As you can see, the kids had a great time and our pancake bar was a success. I truly look forward to giving back to many organizations this year and ensuring that our company gives back just as much as our customers give to us.
